well its beginning to get annoying now..... ill drive the supra around town and the only problem im having with it is that if i slow down for a light, stop sign or anything where i come to a complete stop it stalls out if im just slowing down ill heel-toe shift to keep the revs up but every time i come to a complete stop then i either have to catch it while im rolling and pop the clutch or just restart it, obviously its whenever i put in the clutch at speed but im trying to figure out what is a quick fix till i can get everything to do my full tune up (i have store credit at NAPA but its only at a certain store) and i won't down that way for a while. Its running rich too and burning oil (203k) but rings and everything will come soon, i need just some input on my full tuneup shopping list

Here is what i have so far, and i know that the o2 sensor will get trashed w/ it burning oil but i need a temp fix to pass inspection. right now that won't happen since the drivers door won't open lol (from either side) so i will be once again visiting by best-est buddy pasupraguy for more parts.

Red is later:

could be a dashpot a dashpot limits how fast the engine can throttle down to prevent stalling could be an ISCV (idle speed control valve) not opening to allow air when idling could be a bad egr valve robbing vacuum from the engine...id start there

really a few degrees this will bump up your idle :) it will also give you a little increase too but just barley bump it up

Are you dense? Seriously, that will not help this guy! He has a problem, and while I may not know what the answer is, I can guarantee it is not that. Don't post bs posts like this, you do it to often and it's bull.

advancing the distributer WILL raise idle!!!! literally

just do it, by a few degrees it will raise it a hundred or so extra rpm and will make a difference or raise base idle off of the throttle body!

PLUS he is also running rich
advance the distributer it will help lean the motor out a tad and raise idle also at the same time replace the o2 sensor, since you advance the spark you are burning more fuel this should take care of the problem you are having. also might try the afm mod to lean it out a little further, as long as you leave the crank (degree) alone you will not run the risk of detonation, though if you hear any pings or knocks (which you shouldnt) just upgrade the fuel to 89 or 93 octane.
o and how is your cat lately (catylitic converter)

BEEN THERE DONE IT

temp fix is to rotate the so called idle speed screw (in the tb) ccw until your idle speed increases enough so that you don't stall. (Screw should be fully cw for normal operation). Use the repair flow diagrams in the online TSRM to repair your setup for final operation.

Read the first post. Stalling in traffic and asking for a quick-fix and a temp fix to keep it driving until he gets money together to really fix the car. He didn't ask for a diagnosis or an answer to what is causing his low idle or ask how to troublehshoot and fix his car. He asked how to keep it from stalling for now. Get a grip. We know he has a problem but he didn't ask for help with his problem.
Erik. Bump the timing up for now to help raise the idle and when you get ready to park the car and fix the real cause of the problem, let us know and we can point you in the right direction.
Also Erik, In case you are ready to start shooting trouble - How do you know it's running rich? You say it's burning oil? What else is it doing? I would first check for vacuum leaks for causing your stalling. Does it idle okay and then die when you step on the brake? Does it idle better when it's cold?
